An amazing anthology of biographical poems for tweens, teens and adults. Robert Priest's approach is both enlightening and inspiring. I found myself reading the poems aloud without missing a beat. A must-have poetry book for everyone! ...more

This is a fun collection that contains plenty of rhythm and rhyme, with a healthy dose of history and heroes/heroines. This would make a fun bedtime read for older kids.
